NEW YORK (CBS) Former Miss Russia Anna Malova is facing drug charges after allegedly stealing her doctor's prescription pad and writing herself a prescription for narcotic painkillers, according to a report.
The Long Island Press writes that the 38-year-old Moscow beauty was arrested Tuesday as she was walking out of a New York pharmacy.
Malova was Miss Russia in 1998 and was one of the top 10 women in the Miss Universe Pageant, the paper says.
Though she is a doctor in her native country, she is not licensed to practice medicine in the United States.
Malova has been charged with criminal possession of narcotics, forgery and criminal impersonation of a physician, according to The Long Island Press.
